Just like Wisconsin doused a hot Baylor team last night in the Sweet 16, Michigan dumped water on a hot Tennessee team tonight in its Sweet 16 game. It wasn’t as easy for the Wolverines as it was for the Badgers. Regardless, the Wolverines won, 73-71, and are just one win from returning to the Final Four for a second season in a row.

There is a lot going on in the world of Big Ten sports. And, my email inbox reflects that.
The Badgers took care of business last night. Now, Michigan and Michigan State take center stage in the Sweet 16. The Wolverines battle No. 11 Tennessee, while the Spartans take on No. 1 Virginia. Michigan has a tough task playing the Vols, who are outplaying that No. 11 seed. This is a hot team, going 8-1 since Feb. 26.
No one saw this coming. In fact, it was too easy for Wisconsin. And now, the Badgers are off to their first Elite Eight since 2005 after a resounding 69-52 2in over Baylor.
